There is something about music........

"There is something about music that keeps its distance even at the moment that it engulfs us. It is at the same time outside and away from us and inside and part of us. In one sense it dwarfs us, and in another we master it. We are led on and on, and yet in some strange way we never lose control." Aaron Copland - Music and Imagination

Aaron Copland - born 14th November 1900, Brooklyn, NY; died: 2nd December 1990, Tarrytown, NY.
